Delays, Delays

Because of ongoing negotiations of the budget bill in the Senate, the election of Mexico's next human rights boss will have to wait.

Last week, Alberto Aziz Nassif pointed out that the official organ that truly has made progress in human rights over the past decade is the Mexico City Commission for Human Rights. It did so by adopting international standards, setting objective goals, and fostering transparency and accountability in its operation. Given the capital city commission's marked progress, Aziz Nassif supports the candidacy of its outgoing boss, Emilio Álvarez Icaza, for the national post.
